BREAKING: TPP Back on Track?

House Speaker John Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell issued a joint statement Wednesday vowing that Congress would send President Barack Obama a package of trade bills that would allow him to finish negotiating the Trans-Pacific Partnership. The House could begin the process Thursday, by voting on a bill to grant Obama fast-track trade negotiation authority. The joint statement is a sign that congressional leaders believe they'll have the votes to revive Obama's trade agenda after it was derailed last week by House Democrats.
